Nantucket Book Festival: Saturday Celebration!

Join us for a special conversation with Kwame Alexander and Safiya Sinclair; poets who have brought the grace and beauty of language into their work in writing. These two critically acclaimed writers are redefining contemporary literature with dynamic and innovative voices that are reshaping how to tell the stories of the narrative of our lives and how their personal journeys have led to creating change in the world. As Kwame reminds us, that change happens “one word at a time”.

Our evening begins with the presentation of the Nantucket Book Foundation’s YOUNG WRITER AWARD, which celebrates and honors the work and vision of our high school students who, through an essay competition, stand with us tonight to accept their award together as One Winner, Four Finalists, “First Among Equals”, inspiration drawn from the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.
